TIM slams Sky Italia antitrust appeal against Serie A deal

Wednesday 23 June 2021 | 09:55 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM) has issued a strongly-worded statement expressing its "amazement" at the decision of pay-TV broadcaster Sky Italia to lodge an appeal before the country's antitrust and competition authority AGCM against the agreement it reached with sports streaming service Dazn to jointly air Serie A football for the next 3 seasons. Sky had previously claimed that the "illegal exclusive agreement" served to strengthen TIM's dominant position in the fixed broadband market by preventing Dazn from sharing its Serie A stream with other operators.
